I A M E N O U G H.
When we realize that our story and perception of our ‘self’ comes directly from the (wounded) needs of others, a whole new perspective of our life emerges. (re-read this)
We have placed all of our self-worth and value… Of how we feel about ourselves directly into the hands of others needs and more often than not, brokenness.
What I mean from this is, imagine it is World War II and you are a book. You are a beautiful book. You are a beautiful book just waiting to be read and devoured by someone. But it’s the war and in the other room is a bottle of whiskey. It’s tough turbulent, painful times in war and the bottle of whiskey is needed by these wounded souls. The whiskey is being devoured and you are being ignored. It makes you feel less. It’s not because you are any less. It’s because the environment and the needs of others, in that moment of time, dictates what THEIR needs are and hence reflects our self-worth.
“I’m not needed”. “I’ve been abandoned”. “I am worthless”. These are our words to our body, our mind, our energetic field. We are radiating and broadcasting LACK….no self-love for us, we have no value. We believe it. We deeply believe it. It becomes us. It shapes our consciousness and CREATES our life.
……But is that true?
YOU are the most beautiful book in the Universe! You are a best-seller! You have won awards!
But to a person suffering with their war, they don’t need a book, they need the alcohol. They may never need a book. It’s okay. It’s about them…..It’s never been about you.
It’s no reflection on you.
Y O U A R E E N O U G H. You have always been enough.
Forgive. Release. Be free. Be compassionate. Be grateful for this lesson.
